I sell the 1 oz. beeswax bars at a couple markets that keep a basket near the counter. I sell to them at 50 cents per bar and they sell them for a dollar. So I get 8 dollars per pound for my wax, have something other than honey for my markets to sell, and they are happy with the markup.

If I sell them at a weekend market, I sell them myself for a dollar a bar, making 16 dollars per pound of wax.

Certainly selling wax as end-use products (bars, candles, figurines, etc.) makes the most money if you have the outlets, time, or ability to sell yourself.

Selling it in bulk to most places nets only 2-4 dollars per pound.

You can sell it for $4.00 a pound plus shipping cost on E bay easy. We get that for even recycled drawn comb that is dark. Of course we let people know it is not cosmitic grade stuff.

Neither is any of the other stuff..... :rolling:

Just change the label....it can be if you really wanted it to be.... :thumbsup:

Ok, Ok...just joking.

It's like the honey guy that waits for the customer on the phone to say what kind of honey he wants before he slaps the label on.....

what I would do is find someone to make foundation out of it.if it has no chem's its worth lot more then 4.00 lb. I have sold mine for as much as 10.00 lb. but like to run most into new foundation on my own wax mill.

$12/lb is well worth your effort, since you'll likely have to crush and strain the honey to get the wax. You can also add the "$1 per 1 oz bar." Making most folks see that a 1lb bar is a deal. The folks I sell to use it for different applications, and most want the pounders.
